Advice for Halloween
Children aged under 12 aren’t vaccinated so it’s important to maintain some basic COVIDSafe principles for trick-or-treating:
- Keep your distance
- Encourage children to clean their hands
- Homes should offer individually wrapped treats
- Trick-or-treaters should stay outside of homes
In addition, ensure any Halloween parties follow the gathering rules of no more than 10 visitors to a home, per day.
